France, Sweden, Germany, Italy, Finland, Bulgaria, Hungary and Spain are some of the countries in which far-right parties have increased their presence. In some cases they became key in the formation of government. But the real concern for the European Union is Italy: the Brothers of Italy party, led by Giorgia Meloni, defender of the role of the dictator and ideologue of fascism, Benito Mussolini, was the most voted force in the last elections.
Marine Le Pen did not win the Presidency in France, but her party won 89 deputies in the National Assembly, an unprecedented success for the far-right party in the country.
Since the last elections, the Sweden Democrats party, a far-right movement, has become a key player in the formation of a government in the Nordic country.
While the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party has been increasing in presence and is now the fourth largest force in the German Bundestag.
But the rise of the extreme right in Italy has become a headache for the European Union. Their positions against European values and an anti-immigration rhetoric that raises fears of further clashes with Brussels are worrying.
More and more analysts admit that, far from being something temporary, the extreme right will once again impose itself and position itself in Europe.
